Product of the Day: Coyote Point E250 SI Series Web Performance Accelerator
Coyote Point's E250 SI web performance accelerator is the ideal way to improve your users' online experience through cost-effective server load balancing and traffic management. Coyote Point keeps your network stable and secure from day one, because the E250 SI uses sophisticated, intelligent algorithms to find and resolve failures before they happen.
Easy to deploy and easy to manage, Coyote affordable server load balancing appliance makes good business sense. There was a time when the only way to add more network capacity was to add more servers. Today you can either add servers or add an E250 SI. And frankly, the E250 SI is the best way to expand your network and ensure rock-solid cluster management.
Minimize expense: If you have 15 servers you can increase capacity 25% with four more servers. Or you can add one E250 SI, which probably costs less than your last server. That translates into 25% more for 25% of the cost.
Minimize risk: From customer-facing web traffic to intranets and partner sites, adding servers adds risk. It also increases complexity and multiplies interoperability woes. And new servers require more rack space and better monitoring, adding even more unwarranted expense.
Minimize headaches: Adding an E250 SI is easy. Very little infrastructure is needed. No additional switches or added network tools required. And once the E250 SI is installed, you won't have to unplug a server for updates. You can bring the server down gracefully and the E250 SI will route traffic around it until it's free.
No one makes load balancing easier or more affordable than Coyote Point.
Put an end to crisis management: If you're the one on the line when there's a traffic-management pile-up, you need the E250 SI. It delivers complete flexibility, availability, manageability and scalability. And it will take you out of crisis management without setting off financial alarms.
Coyote Point provides an industry-standard, plug-and-play solution that lets you consolidate resources and maximize the potential of your network without sacrificing one iota of performance.
It's the intelligent, elegant solution:
Connect up 512 servers.
Add and remove servers or clusters without service breaks.
Boost network performance, directing traffic across all your servers.
Ensure servers aren't overworked, just used to their fullest potential.
Update severs without service interruption.

Practical Task Scheduling Deployment

One of the best things about the UNIX environment (aside from being stable and efficient) is the vast array of software tools available to help you do your job. Traditionally, a UNIX tool does only one thing, but does that one thing very well. For example, grep is very easy to use and can search vast amounts of data quickly. The find tool can find a particular file or files based on all kinds of criteria. It's pretty easy to string these tools together to build even more powerful tools, such as a tool that finds all of the .log files in the /home directory and searches each one for a particular entry. This erector-set mentality allows UNIX system administrators to seem to always have the right tool for the job.
Cron traditionally has been considered another such a tool for job scheduling, but is it enough? This webinar considers that very question. The first part builds on a previous Geek Guide, Beyond Cron, and briefly describes how to know when it might be time to consider upgrading your job scheduling infrastructure. The second part presents an actual planning and implementation framework.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
